    Default My baby seems thin? Or is he just growing?

    -imag0729-jpg
    I feed him Fromm Puppy Gold 3 times a day.
    He's 5 months old and seems to always want food and he got skinnier.
    Im not sure if its because he's growing (He is getting bigger)
    But it just doesn't seem like he's fattening up.
    My husband thinks we should switch him to adult food but I had asked before on here and was told to wait til he's 6 months.
    So I'm wondering if I should continue with the puppy food or is it time to change over?
    If so can I just switch completely?
    OR am I crazy and its all normal. haha
    The two loves of my life fart and snore like crazy....what does that say about me??? ;D

    I figure bulldogs grow like kids. Up. Out. Up. Out. And so on. I wouldn't be too worried.

    How much does he weigh? You are feeding him the right way, 3 times a day until 6 or 7 months old, then twice a day. Puppy food actually has more calories than adult food, to accommodate their rapid growth, and also has more nutrients during this stage too. So if you think he's not gaining weight, then I would leave him on the puppy food, I switched my two pups to adult food at 7 months of age. My two weigh 32 and 34 lbs at 8 months old, Blossom has consistently been 2 lbs behind her brother since we got them. My vet says she likes their weight, and that they are a good size, but not too heavy, she says you should still be able to see their ribs a little, as this is healthier for the dog. I wouldn't worry, as long as he's getting enough food, maybe he's just a little more active, and burning it off faster. You could always double check with your vet to make sure, he's a good weight, and growing well, just to ease your mind. I'm sure he's fine.

    If that's a current picture then I think you have no worries. if anything he might be just a tiny bit chubby because he doesn't have a defined waist, he doesn't look too skinny by any means. That said, I only have experience with an adult bully so perhaps the puppies don't have a waist the way an adult should.

    He doesn't look too thin to me, he is just growing and you might just now be recognizing his new stages as he get taller and less of a puppy-bubble body
